Workwear Doesn’t Have to Be Boring

Let’s be honest for a moment: most of your workwear doesn’t exactly conveysmart casual. The good news is that looking stylish at work is possible(no side-eye from HR, we promise),so here are tips to help your work wardrobe look professional, modern, and sharp.
Flower Midi Skirt

Dainty Florals

As long as they aresmall and paired accordingly, blooms are welcome in the office (and you will find plenty of them on our Korean clothing website. Balance a whimsical floral print with under-the-kneeskirts, cigarette pants, cardigans in solid colors, or opaque tights. Do you find anything boring about a tailored blazer layered over a floral print dress, or a neutral turtleneck matched with a floral print pencil skirt? We don’t.
Front Vent Leather Skirt

Bold Colors

Modest, neutral colors can become dull when worn on repeat, and although we love black, navy, gray and taupe, we believe bold huescan bring new life into workwear instantly. Channel a fierce cobalt blue skirt with a white shirt, or a pair of fire red pants with a grey sweater for extra fashion points, and punch things up with a green dress and a navy blazer.
Sophisticated Stripes

Sophisticated Stripes

Lines are perfect for the office as long as you stick to a subdued palette (check the stripy pieces our amazing Korean clothes brands have to offer. Vertical stripes are our all-time favoritebecause they discretely add the extra inch to any silhouette, and look clean and crisp with solid colors. Tip: banker stripes are a must right now.

Statement Accessories

No matter how ordinary your outfit may look, you can always revamp it with a statement Korean fashion accessory, such as an interesting timepiece, a show-stopping pair of shoes, an It bag, or attention-grabbing jewelry. The best part is that you can find new accessories at any budget to nail this style trick.

Feeling confident and attractive in your work attire is part of achieving professional success.

Capsule Wardrobe or How to Keep an Impeccable Style with a Tiny Closet

If you have been trying to rethink your wardrobe setup for a while but not sure where to start, here is the best advice we can give you: build a capsule wardrobe.

What is it?

A basic collection of essentials in creating the basis of all your outfits- less is more. Varying from 25 to 40 items (according to experts), the minimalist collection should include your absolute favorite clothing, accessories and jewelry that you would wear on repeat. And no, a tinier closet does not mean you need to compromise on style.

How do you build it?

Start by (ruthlessly) emptying the contents of your wardrobe and follow your instinct when you sortthe clothes into 4 distinct piles: (Adore, Possibly maybe, Sale/donation, No way/trash). Keep the first two, say good-bye to the rest. It’s that simple.

What should you keep?

Basically, your capsule wardrobe should contain the clothes you wear daily and can’t be without.
Loose Drop Tee
Ladies, think basic Korean fashion items like a white tee and boyfriend jeans, a soft knit turtleneck and a pair of stylish tailored pants, a dress for every season, a crisp button down shirt to match a sharp blazer and a flattering pencil skirt, a classic coat, casual pants and a slouchy sweater. For accessories, add a smart clutch and a casual bag, sneakers, stilettos and ankle boots. Pair them with your favorite jewellery, sunglasses and scarves.
Unbal Over Striped Shirt
Gents should make sure they have at least one great quality shirt, a clean suit, a long overcoat and a biker jacket for casual days, a pair of classic jeans, a tee and a sweater, a cardigan, one turtleneck and a pair of joggers, loafers, dress shoes and sneakers.
Handmade Suede Sneakers

What’s so great about it?

Less is more. You will never look into your wardrobe and say you have nothing to wear again. You’ll spend less time in the morning deciding on your outfit, and save money on clothes you never wear.In addition your minimalistic approach is green- keeps money in your pocket and helps the planet. You’ll have more room in your closet for those global fashion pieces that really matter. www.KOODING.COM.

8 Smart Tips to Organize Your Closet

8 Smart Tips to Organize Your Closet
Believe it or not, an organized closet can be a life-changer (when your mornings run smoothly and your outfit options feel endless you’ll see what we mean). Now open your closet. Does it scream chaos? Here’s a quick list to help you organize your closet and keep your Korean fashion items in place.

  1. Invest in various storage units to maximize your space. Besides the usual hangers, start using boxes, clear plastic drawers, stackable baskets and hanging canvas shelves to store accessories, shoes, folded items, and more.
  2. Place the clothes you wear frequently at eye level, so they are easy to spot and grab. The ones you use less can be stored below, while those you rarely sport can go high up in your closet.
  3. Bulky pieces, things you only use once in a blue moon, or out-of-season clothing items can be organized in boxes or suitcases and placed under beds or in a storage room.
  4. Each time you declutter, try to donate, recycle or consign. A great way to decide what must go is to turn around every hanger in your closet with the hook pointing towards you. Every time you wear an item, just hang it back the normal way. At the end of each season, you will realize that the hangers facing the wrong way are holding items you don’t need any longer.
  5. Exploit every single inch of your wardrobe and start using hanger racks, over-the-door hooks and shoe bags (a vertical boot organizer is a must!).
  6. A towel bar attached to a wasted wall space is ideal to hang your scarf collection.
  7. Shoe organizers can also be used for storing bulky items, such as sweaters and cardigans. Just roll them carefully before you stow them away.
  8. Group your clothing by category (dresses, pants, jackets, shirts) or, if you have extra time and patience, arrange them by color, from light to dark.

Try these tips and let us know how it went. But, in the meantime, don’t forget to visit www.KOODING.com, the Korean fashion online shop for the pickiest closets.

Timeless Denim: the Fashion Staple You Can’t Live Without

It’s official: denim is THE fabric that flatters every possible body shape. It is also hard working and super comfy to wear. Plus, it’s a staple of global fashion and an all-time favorite Korean fashion online buy. Do you need more reasons to love it?

Accidentally discovered in France in the 18th century, but brought to fame by Levi Strauss during the Gold Rush, denim today graces everyone’s wardrobe. It’s versatile and can be styled in so many ways that, whether you are super-feminine or a tomboy, you will find at least one denim item to help you create a host of new favorite looks.

KOODING.com wants to help you step up your denim game with a few cozy-chic pieces that will always stay relevant and, as this fabric happens to be huge in every season’s trend stakes, here are some ideas you can’t go wrong with.

 Honey Span Vintage Napping Skinny

Investing in a new pair of skinnies is always a smart move, unless you prefer them cropped and distressed, or perhaps you’re more of a boyfriend jeans type.

All Denim Jumpsuit

Denim jumpsuits and overalls are great options for when you need a sleek look without the effort, not to mention the good old denim shirt that exudes effortless cool. Denim jackets can be layered over trendy tees or soft knits and paired with the bottoms of your choice, while a basic denim dress can be dressed up with heels and an oversized belt or down with cool sneakers.

What we love most about denim is that with proper styling it works from morning to after dark.  Be ready to embrace this global fashion hero (in case you are not obsessing over it already) and remember there is no wrong way to wear it. www.KOODING.com.
